Nova Scotia's provincial government is reportedly pushing for the state of Maine to provide the Nova Star Cruises ferry a $5 million line of credit. The Canadian province has already provided the ferry service between Portland and Nova Scotia a total of $21 million in government subsidies that was originally supposed to be distributed over a seven-year period. While the state of Maine has yet to aid the ferry, state officials have previously said they would help Nova Star Cruises obtain a $5 million line of credit. The Nova Star ferry saw nearly double the number of passengers in July over the previous month, but the service remains behind ridership expectations.
